Women in Exhibitions Network has been set up to fulfil the mission of empowering women in the industry whilst helping to nurture the next generation of female leaders. This community is the result of a joint effort of inspirational female leaders from our industry who are our founding members and ambassadors.

On top of that support, there is a large community of sponsors from the industry in the Netherlands who support us among whom we like to mention: Expoflora, JMT, A-Booth, 4Foreverything, Hestex Systems Group, MeetingLinq, Mansveld Expotech and most recently DBSchenker. We thank them for their support and trust.
